Kellan Talks Auditioning for ‘Tarzan’ and Arm Wrestling on ‘Twilight’ Set!
Hollywood. com recently caught up with Kellan at iD Gum Launch event in NYC and here is what he had to say about Tarzan and passing the time on the Twilight set!
While Lutz loves the technology-infused style of acting, he didn’t audition for Tarzan knowing he’d end up in a one-piece, swinging from vines that would only be created after the fact. “When I auditioned, I wore my Conan wig, because I was testing for Conan the Narbarian at the time,” says Lutz. “So I had this wig that I made for that so I wore that and then I walked into the audition in my underwear.” (Remember his 2010 Calvin Klein X underwear campaign?) Only after his audition was he told the film would be animated. Unfortunately, his beefed up physical presence — what you might expect from a Tarzan — wouldn’t work. “They’re like, ‘No can you actually slim down so you can fit in the suit,’”Lutz explained.
Lutz has moved on to his next project, but he’ll always be game to talk about his time on Twilight. Like most of the cast, he’s tight-lipped on what we’ll see in Breaking Dawn — Part 2‘s grand finale, but he didn’t reveal how he passed the time on set. Inspired by a scene in Part 2 where Emmett arm wrestles a newly-vampiric Bella, Lutz held a few strength competitions of his own. “When you are on set, you kind of get bored easily and I arm wrestled everyone, even Ashley [Greene]. She’ll kick me in the shin to beat me. We have fun. It’s a really tight-knit family.” From the sound of it, Lutz didn’t have a problem besting his costars (sorry, Mr. Lautner).
